This episode I’m joined by friend of the show Damo. We had plenty to discuss this episode as the NBA has no shortage of drama EVER. Some of the topics include:
(3:30) Dion Waiters airplane gummy incident
Can the disgruntled Heat guard recover from this or is he done in south beach? What other teams can he join where he can really produce? Will he ever return to the form that we saw a couple of years ago?
(9:20) THE KNICKS STINK! The Knicks front office is in disarray once again for the 100th consecutive season. Is Fizdale really to blame? How good did management expect to be? How long can Fizdale last until he’s handed the pink slip? Is there a better option?
(18:00) Porzingis makes his return to MSG this week to take on the Knicks. How will the city react to him? Will he have a monster game? Or will he crumble under the pressure?
(21:37) John Collins was suspended for 25 games for the use of performance enhancing drugs. Are the Atlanta Hawks playoff aspirations done for the season? Can Trae Young & Jabari Parker hold it down in his absence?
(26:00) Fools Gold: How many teams do we really believe have a shot at a title? How good is Portland? They have some major holes in their roster and I am not convinced. Why is everyone crowning the 76ers as the clear cut favorite in the east? Damo isn’t as confident in them as he once was.
(46:30) Have the Milwaukee Bucks hit their ceiling? Has Giannis peaked as a talent or can he get better & elevate his teammates? We discuss what the Bucks need to get over the hump.
(55:17) “The Crossover” segment to close it out
